Mack’s daughter is away at summer camp, an annual experience she refers to as the “best week of my life”.
Which is odd since the week in the woods doesn’t include her usual teenage technology baggage; a laptop, phone and social media.
Seems a break from the digital grind also appeals to adults according to the founders of Camp Grounded, a summer camp a few hours north of San Francisco where the tech-addicted surrender their phones, tablets, computers and watches to learn how to “disconnect to reconnect”.
Summer camp offers a reprieve by slowing life down, allowing you to rediscover the more important things in life such as one-on-one connections, playing an epic game of capture the flag and lying on your back, gazing up at the night sky.
Enjoy your summer. Mack will return in September.
